The Royal Hotel is right near the beach, handy for boat trips to the Isle of May, near to restaurants. The breakfast is a full Scottish, very nice. I booked a single room, which had a single bed, but was very comfortable, good ensuite, warm and quiet.

Fantastic warm friendly welcome. Comfortable spotlessly clean room. Superb breakfast. My husband and I had a lovely stay at the Royal Hotel. Staff and customers made us feel really at home. We will certainly be back.

Spent 2 nights here. Room basic but spotless. Staff very friendly and helpful. They supplied snacks,sausage rolls and sandwiches in the bar. Restaurant Food was delicious. We had the haggis Bon bons and the steak and ale pie. Very reasonable prices. The only small issue was the low water pressure in the shower. We will definitely stay here again.

Thank you for your kind comments regarding our staff, hospitality in the bar and restaurant food. Regarding the low water pressure we know there is an issue with this as it is an old building and are looking into ways of improving this. Hopefully we will have come up with a solution before your next visit to the area. Anne...

Fantastic meal in the Royal Hotel, Anstruther I had the homemade steak and ale pie which was delicious, my wife had the haddock in batter which I could have eaten as well, it looked so good. The batter was light and crispy and the fish had beautiful white flesh, thoroughly recommend the Royal for a meal.

At short notice we, and two friends, decided to go to Anstruther for an overnight stay on a Saturday night and the Royal Hotel had been highly recommended. We weren't disappointed. We had dinner which all four of us thought was excellent. The fish was huge and the batter very light. One of the party needed gluten free and was...
